    Default Brass RM2......Brass Button Cover...

    A fellow Reonaut asked if I could make a brass button cover. Well since since the button & button cover are delrin, I thought metal on delrin might be trickier for a friction fit. Could have took an easier route but I was up for the challenge. I sure won't be making these often, had to hold a tolerance of 2 tenth of a thousandths.


    Here's what I came up with to match the grooves on the RM2.








    While I was at it, made another style.

    Those are awesome man !!! I was just thinking about stripping my RM2 and getting a brass drip tip but that button cover looks way better than a brass tip. Great work !

    Absolutely wonderful...

    I wanted a brass button for mine so I ordered one off Amazon to glue to the Delrin button but yours is ten times better.

    Why did you have to post those pics? I hate you...

    Absolutely beautiful! Both a perfect partner for the Copper Vein.
